Jessica’s Mommy and Me Session

Jessica’s Mommy and Me Session This is Jessica’s first year in the Mommy Photography Program, but not my first time photographing her and her daughter, Sterling and her stepdaughter, Gabby.

Lemonade Stand Session | Mommy Photography Program

What is better than a glass of lemonade on a hot summer day?  The latest Mommy and Me program was a lemonade stand session at the New Hanover County Arboretum.

Amy’s Senior Portrait Session

This year was unique to say the least for my senior sessions. Because of COVID, seniors lost out on the full end-of-year experience they deserved. Amy wanted to still commemorate her last year at UNC Wilmington with her BFF’s Claire and Ellery. They decided that a senior portrait session together would be a perfect way to end their college careers …

Sophia’s Bathing Suit Session | Senior Model Program

One study has shown that 94% of young girls have been body shamed by the time they get to high school. WOW! That is horrible. Body shaming by anyone, including a parent who is only trying to help, can have …
